An international law firm with more than 2,800 attorneys has chosen an e-discovery solution to support its Australian information logistics services. Herbert Smith Freehills will deploy Relativity, a Web-based e-discovery platform from kCura, to create and automate custom workflows.
The solution will also provide Herbert Smith Freehills with a complete set of text analytics capabilities, including computer-assisted review, and allow the firm to build custom applications within the software to manage and search all types of case-related data and information, according to kCura. The law firm staff will also take advantage of the integrations that connect third-party software to Relativity, enabling it to create an end-to-end e-discovery solution from best-in-breed solutions.
Alan Peckham, chief knowledge officer at Herbert Smith Freehills, says, “Building custom workflows in Relativity will allow our Australian legal teams to strategize earlier and more efficiently. We’re excited to evolve Relativity to meet our changing needs. For us, Relativity will not be a standstill product; we will continue to build on it to support our Australian operations.”
Gary Adler, head of IT, Australia, for Herbert Smith Freehills, says, “Relativity has a very intuitive interface and provides significant flexibility. It’s also easy to support.”
